You state the case for WB perfectly. Great movie.

I loved how the director went down there and attended church services and such, spent time in the community, and ended up casting several local non-actors.

I don't know why this doesn't happen more often when it comes to depicting place and setting. I guess some budgets are just too dang big to mess with that stuff.

Thank-you, and I agree that something smells in the state of American film. I probably watch 2 to 3 foreign films for every American one. One category I think we still excel at is documentary films. I'm not talking political docs which are almost always awful. This one I found very interesting.

And I just saw this again. A must.
